Gary Lewis –
Erin and Gary have owned and operated a successful Tupperware business for over 41 years and love what they do. After realizing in 2006 that San Diego could benefit from a local, year round, non-profit musical theatre organization, they decided that the time was right to add an exciting new adventure to their life — and San Diego Musical Theatre was born.
San Diego Musical Theatre, is a local, non-profit, professional musical theatre organization, in its fourteenth year of presenting Broadway style musical theatre. SDMT is the only year-round musical theatre organization in San Diego and takes pride in being one of the only theatres in San Diego, to offer live orchestras during each production. SDMT provides a home for over 400 artists annually such as actors, directors, designers, musicians, and crew! The Horton Grand Theatre in San Diego’s downtown, Gaslamp District is SDMT’s home.
We are proud of our organization and the quality of musical theatre that we provide San Diego audiences. Starting with our first show, the Full Monty in 2007, San Diego Musical Theatre has produced over 50 musical theatre productions – many Regional Premieres and two World Premieres. The San Diego Theatre Critics Circle has recognized SDMT’s productions with many awards and award nominations for outstanding musical theatre productions, directors, choreographers, musical director and performers.
Musical theatre is the only truly American art form, other than Jazz. SDMT is driven by a passion for musical theatre, a passion to celebrate this art form with others and a passion to pass the American tradition on to the next generation. We strive to do just that through our SDMT Academy where we offer classes, in a safe and supportive environment, for youth and adults.
SDMT’s You Give. We Give. campaign is our way to give back to our community. SDMT chooses another local nonprofit organization, for each of our productions, and donates to that organization to support the work they do in our community. We are proud that since this campaign started, we have donated over $20,000 to other local non-profits to help with their missions.
SDMT continues to expand their presence in the local theatre community and offer San Diego audiences live entertainment of the highest caliber. San Diego Musical Theatre is your local way to see Broadway.
